An incisive and inspiring call to look beyond capitalism to chart a road map for a planet ravaged by pandemics, climate crisis, and wars.

Prompted by trenchant questions by international solidarity organizer Frank Barat, renowned author and activist Vijay Prashad shows that the path toward hope and liberation lies in looking closely at myriad, under covered struggles being waged all across the world by workers in countries such as India, Kenya, Peru, Tunisia, and Argentina. A marvelously global but grassroots perspective.


"An essential, brilliant revolutionary post pandemic conversation and primer about everything that matters and how we can move from the devastation of capitalism to a living breathing working socialism. Informative and profoundly inspirational." --V (formerly Eve Ensler), The Vagina Monologues and The Apology

"Vijay Prashad's remarkable work has for years been an incomparable source of information and understanding about the Global South, while also providing incisive analysis of major developments of world affairs." --Noam Chomsky
